So Many Twins at St. Joseph’s Health
There must be something in the water in CNY! Three sets of twins were born at St. Joseph’s Health Hospital last weekend, June 10 and 11. Pictured here are: Kendall and Kamryn Burke, Theodore and Evelyn Kalina, and Haein and Haeyoon Jeon.
“In 32 years, I’ve never seen three sets of twins in 24 hours,” said Heather Shimer-Bero, CNS, Director of Women & Infants Service Line. “Our Labor & Delivery and Mother/Baby colleagues showed incredible teamwork and managed all three deliveries beautifully.”
Get this – two days ago, another set of twins was born! AND, a fifth set was transferred into the NICU from a regional hospital. St. Joseph’s Health Hospital’s neo-natal intensive care unit was the first in the region when it opened in 1970 and provides critical care to newborns from 16 counties.
All the twins born at St. Joe’s are happy and healthy and headed home with their families.
